Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the Center for Great Expectations. Here, you'll discover what you can do to help support New Jersey's under-served population of pregnant and parenting adolescents, adult women, and their children break the cycle of homelessness, addiction, abuse, and neglect.
According to the National Coalition on Homelessness, almost 300,000 of America's homeless are single women, mostly struggling with addiction and/or mental illness. Approximately 25,000 of New Jersey's unmarried teens give birth each year. These statistics support the need for facilities like The Center for Great Expectations, and also indicate that the need is growing, and our facilities in New Jersey can not keep up with the expanding need for our services without your support.
